    I'm going to Uni in September and have heard that some rooms may not be big enough for decks but fuck that, I'll find room.

    I can't go without them for many reasons. But mainly cos

    1) I'm totally addicted to it and it gives me a buzz to be honest

    and 2) I've worked hard and put the time in to get to a level I'm really happy with - I haven't fucked a single mix between tracks for as long as I can remember and I mix really fast. I couldn't bear to lose it all due to not practicing for a few months and lose progress.

    ^^Just read that and it sounds a bit big headed, but come on, I'm guessing everyone on here is a sickhead on their home setup!

    This is why when you go to uni you dont bother with halls get a house with your mates... That way you can play music till practicly whatever time you want... Have parties, an you get a decent size room. Me an my mates didnt bother with halls just went straight into an 8 bedroom house, an it was probly the best year an a half of my life

    Scotty knows. Sooner or later though you'll find someone around who's safe so you can hang out at theirs for a mix. In second you year you should be able to hook it up in your room or lounge, depending on who you're living with.

    Since I completed my set up (for the moment) I'd say that the longest I've gone without decks was 2 weeks. And that was because they were in for a service. Bastard still hasn't fixed 'em so they have to go back :mad:

    By the end of the summer I would've been without my decks for about 3 months, maybe a bit more. Been a month already and it's only really recently I'm clucking for a mix!

    13 years. Soon as I got to that age I haven't been away from them for a second.
